I like the double meaning in the phrase, “no escaping this time”. Thanks for sharing this.

thanks Ivan. i thought the double meaning was significant, even if just to me, but am comforted knowing it struck you as well. peace.

This is painfully beautiful, Snowflake. The words, your delivery, your stunning voice just go straight to my heart. xxxx

thanks dear ciggi. much appreciated. it is comforting, somehow, to know this pain has been perceived by another.

We’ll certainly see remixes out of this, but the argument is well described by a solo piano and reverbed voice. Beautiful, beautiful like it is.

beautifully sung, Emily, with lots of space as if you are drawing out time itself.

When we lost my wife’s sister while we were staying with them, I kept thinking about the chair she sat in the night before. She had put it there - how long would it be until somebody moved it, and it would no longer be her chair? All of the things she’d put in cupboard - how long until somebody moved them? Bit by bit, her afterglow would be removed, even if unintentionally.

Your song reminds me that these things are all still there. That chair is still there in the same place, and she is still sitting in it - if only in my memory. You see, I recorded all the pictures so carefully in my mind, that I can still visit them.

Thank you for this.

thank you for sharing these thoughts. memory is an amazing vehicle of transport to past moments we long to hold onto. death of a loved one can turn our concepts of time and existence upside down…at least, it has for me.

thank you for your beautiful mix of this track, and for sharing with us all. peace.

Just beautiful Emily! The underlying pain and loss touches my heart and connects with the loss of my sister and young nephew.
Likewise, the Admiral’s words about the loss of his sister-in-law.

One of my fav sayings is:

You can get anything your heart desires but you cant get more time.
